I changed one thing in my HP notebook, and the system wouldn't boot now. In the Control Panel, Regional & Language options, I added the East Asia language pack. Then changed the default non-unicode language in the Advance tab to be Korean. The notebook went ahead and did the change and asked to be restarted.
Now I get a message like this in the blue screen: "missing or corrupt c_949.nls. try repair using the original CD."
Of course, I don't have the original CD of this non-mine, five-year-old notebook.
And no way to go back via safemode boot, etc.
By the way, the control panel setting exactly like this works fine with my other notebook. There in the c:\windows\system32 directory, I find c_949.nls, and 79 other c_*.nls files.
Is there any way around the "reinstall/repair" path?
